Holy smokes!! I need to go out and find friends like that!! Awesome score, Rome. If you need somewhere to "store" the right hand side of that picture, Just let me know! LOL. Can't have autos in Canada. Congrats on the new additions!
Whoa I need to hang out with better people I guess. HA!
Now that is a friend!
I really have not figured out how I am going to repay him, but I will find someway.
The rest of the box that he gave me included 3 Case bowie knives, 2 NIB, 1 Hen&Rooster Stag Bowie, 2 Buck
sheath knives, 1 Old Timer and 1 Japanese Copy of a Ka-Bar. There was also a Masters of Defense
There were another 35 traditional folders including Case, Buck, Hen & Rooster, Puma, Schrade, Western
and a couple I have not identified yet.
I have to say it is one of the best gifts I have ever received and I told him when he gave them to me that some
of them were worth good money and offered to buy them but he said that he did not want the knives . Then he
quoted the old wives tale that if you sell a friend a knife it will sever the friendship. I am really blessed to
have him as a friend.
To counter any bad luck I did make him take a shiny new penny for good luck.
Good work Rome! A penny is a wise investment when someone is gifting you a knife, never want to lose a friend that thinks so highly of you!
What a generous gift!
Wow!! Whatta great friend you have!
What can you tell me about the "Buck" knife, second from the bottom on the left? I have one which looks identical and has an "automatic opening"....aka...switchblade function on that oval tab you can see just behind the blade.
I think I paid about $185.00 for it, but now I've forgotten where I got it. Seems like they were being made in Tennessee by a knifemaker or small business there.
Just curious. I love mine and it's well made with a very strong action spring.
Sorry for the late reply.
I don't really know anything about it. I do know that it Buck did not do the conversion, even though they are
now making a 110 auto of their own now. The friend that gave it to me had no info on it. So sorry I am not any help.
